Resident Rotations

Residents will rotate through two clinical services (SIU service and Springfield Clinic service) in 2-month (PGY-2&3/Uro-1&2 residents) and 3-month (PGY-4/Uro-3) intervals.
The SIU service is responsible for participating in cases/clinics and managing the patients of the SIU attending urologists: Drs. Köhler, and Schwartz.  One day per week, the adjunct faculty (Drs. Grampsas and Wilson are also covered by the SIU service.  The areas of urology encompassed by the SIU service include:

The Springfield Clinic (SPC) service is responsible for participating in the care and management of the patients of the community urologist teaching panel:  Drs. Baron, Roszhart, Severino and Lieber.  The areas of urology encompassed by the SPC service include:

Rotation through these services exposes the residents to a variety of practice settings and to patients from two different referral bases. The resident will have dedicated time with the attending urologists in the outpatient clinic setting, will be assigned to perform initial hospital consultations, and will assist in the operating room.  Assigned responsibilities will be commensurate with level of training and experience.

The Chief Residents (PGY-5/Uro-4) participate in clinics/surgical cases of their choosing.  They manage the participants corresponding to the surgical cases in which they participate and are independent of the service rotations.
